No doctor’s referral is required for any of our private services at Central Performance. However, if you have already seen your doctor and have a written referral, or if you already have any x-rays or other scan results, please bring these along to your first appointment.
All of our therapists are fully accredited with all health funds, and for your convenience we provide on-the-spot health fund claims through the HICAPS system. If you are in a private health fund please bring your card along with you. Please check with your fund to see what services your level of cover includes.
The only time you will need a referral from your doctor is if you are being treated through Workers’ Compensation, Enhanced Primary Care, Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) or Compulsory Third Party Insurance after a car accident. In these instances, please bring your GP referral as well as the insurance details or your DVA card.
